  • New content outside our usual, day-to-day.

  • Practical and culturally responsive “how to’s” for building resiliency within ourselves, our ‘ohana, and our organizations.

Mana’o From Past Attendees

The overall conference was amazing. Every session that I attended was filled with take-aways and resources that I will utilize with my staff and program.

Overall, attending this conference has ignited more passion within me to rise up and step into my position on the canoe and paddle in unity with everyone else around me.

Today’s conference was extremely heartfelt and inspiring. I was blown away by moʻoleloʻs, cultural protocol, and cultural practices shared, the conference enlightened me and provided me with new tools for my cultural competence tool kit.
